Nimble, resilient, and versatile like a true snow chaser, the Icelantic Nomad Ski is designed to not just survive but thrive in every snow condition. Attractive curves and a balanced flex give the Nomad its stability and quickness, while the 140mm tip provides ample float in the deepest fluff. Powder is never a guarantee, so the versatile 105 mm waist will save the day when a high-pressure ridge sets in to turn your dreams of powder into a long session on the frontside.

Like all Icelantic skis, the Nomad is handmade in Colorado through a process Icelantic calls its Tri-Axe construction. The layup of a playful poplar core with unilateral fiberglass sandwiched above and below results in a ski that's stiff enough to charge down open bowls, playful enough to slarve turns through the trees, and scrub speed when technical lines demand a little finesse. The rockered tip and tail gets the wide shovel up when there is a bit of pow and gives the ski a fun and playful soul.

The Icelantic Nomad is perhaps one of the most versatile skis I've ever been on. Blasting through crud? not a problem. Floating on bottomless pow? yeah, it does that too. Ripping up the front side? You'd think no, but this thing can handle it all. I've used these sticks on the ice coast and in the Rockies, and it hasn't let me down yet. For a ski that can really handle it all, take the nomad out for a spin.

Would this be a good ski for a Tele setup? How would it compare to the Soul7?
I currently have Sin7 Tele setup and am looking for something that turns quicker and is better in powder and crud.

Hey Deloss,

I have skied the Nomads tele and they make a solid telemark ski in my opinion. I like the Soul 7 and Super 7s a little better since they have more of a rockered tip (easier to initiate a tele turn). The Nomads are quick edge to edge and are a little stiffer compared to the Rossi skis which is better for the crud and variable conditions. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions and tele skis.

Thoughts on having this as an East and West coast ski? Too wide for Vermont?
